"Educating the public and our own children about food-allergy safety is key and gives us peace of mind when they are away from us," Frank told reporters. Both he and his teenage daughter have food allergies. The Walk raises awareness and funds for food allergy education and research. They are held nationwide to support FAAN, an international nonprofit organization that serves to provide information about food allergy to the public.
This year's walk will begin at 10 AM at the Great Lawn, north of Pier Village. Check in for the event is 9 AM. The walk will be followed by a free concert featuring children's singer/songwriter mr. RAY. Magician Bruce Bray will also be there for a show,as well as state Sen. Sean Kean.
